Collaboration and partnership sit at the heart of the SmartGrowth way of working

The three partner councils, Bay of Plenty Regional Council, Western Bay of Plenty District Council and Tauranga City Council and tangata whenua provide governance oversight to SmartGrowth.

Government agencies, particularly the NZ Transport Agency, play important roles in all aspects of SmartGrowth's work.

Forums provide input and monitoring advice on a range of matters relating to the western Bay of Plenty.

Technical support is provided by a small SmartGrowth staff team, the chief executives and a partner Management Group
